In this text, Eglewogbe sought to present a key moral puzzle about pregnancy and abortions concerning a girl who becomes pregnant under ‘influence’. She is in an inner struggle as she suffers guilt and mental suffering. Thus, she is faced with the dilemma of whether to keep the pregnancy or abort it.
